It was a divine sword held in a stiff and pale hand. It was dazzling, resplendent, and seethed with cold and dim divine radiance.
At this instant of collision, this sword droned and trembled violently while divine radiance erupted from it, whereas, that hand which held the sword seemed to have been shaken by an enormous force and emanated clear sounds of cracking.
“Ah! Ah!” A sharp voice that sounded like metal rubbing against each other resounded.
Chen Xi turned around and saw an ancient ancestral god corpse staggering back, and its blood red pupils emanated a ruthless and furious glow.
As expected! Chen Xi’s heart shook. He knew that he’d revealed a trace of a flaw at this moment of shock from before, and it instantly caused him to be noticed by this fellow. Thus, it launched a surprise attack against him.
In the next moment, Chen Xi’s figure flashed as he utilized the Daoseal Mark once more, and he concealed the aura throughout his body while silently vanishing into the surroundings.
The ancient ancestral god corpse was instantly stunned on the spot. A trace of bewilderment flashed in its blood red pupils, and then it let out an extremely disgruntled howl.
Its voice was like a thunderclap that resounded throughout the surroundings.
In next to no time, a wave of the sound of space being torn apart resounded from the surroundings. Numerous ancient ancestral god corpses appeared here, and in a short period of time, there were actually no less than over 30 ancient ancestral god corpses that had gathered here!
This caused the heart of Chen Xi who hid in the shadows to go cold. He was clearly aware that if he directly entered into battle with that ancient ancestral god corpse from before, then he would have probably been encircled by a dense mass of these monsters. At that time, he would probably be unable to escape.
At this moment, these ancient ancestral god corpses had gathered together and were communicating with a form of obscure will, and even Chen Xi was unable to hear what they were saying.
It was an extremely unfamiliar language. It was ancient, obscure, and something completely different from anything Chen Xi had seen in the past.
In next to no time, these ancient corpses split apart and flew towards different directions.
Not to mention a Spirit God Exalt, even a Universe Enlightened Ancestral God would be unable to escape calamity upon being encircled by these fellows…. Chen Xi was shocked in his heart, and he didn’t dare be careless at all any longer. After he confirmed that there was nothing unusual in an area of 500km in the surroundings, he silently set out and approached that blue colored beam of divine radiance that shot into the sky.
It was an expanse of ancient ruins that were enveloped by a dense expanse of Desolate Manku Qi, and one could still faintly notice the traces of collapsed ancient buildings in the surroundings.
At this moment, a dazzling blue colored beam of light had charged out from these ruins. It was blazing, vast, and suffused with a pure ancestral aura.
When Chen Xi arrived here, his pupils couldn’t help but constrict. If he hadn’t experienced that scene from before, he would have almost been shocked again at this moment.
It wasn’t because it was really an eighth-grade Ancestral Root as he’d deduced, and it was also because with this eighth-grade Ancestral Root as the center, there were actually four seventh-grade Ancestral Roots that emanated azure light in an area of 500km in the surroundings!
Four seventh-grade Ancestral Roots and one eighth-grade Ancestral Root. This is simply… simply…. Chen Xi gasped, and he was unable to describe his feelings as this moment.
This was too shocking. Because as soon as these Ancestral Roots made an appearance, it was actually such a world shocking scene, and it was simply unbelievable.
After all, he’d searched bitterly along with Le Wuhen and the others before this, and they’d returned completely empty handed. Yet now, such a group of Ancestral Roots had suddenly appeared before him. This was simply like a natural treasure trove had suddenly descended before his eyes, and the level of shock he experienced was obvious.
But in merely a moment, Chen Xi’s heart turned cold. Because he sensed that there were at least 100 plus ancient ancestral god corpses lying in ambush in the vicinity of these five Ancestral Roots!
Such a number didn’t seem to be too shocking. However, if they were 100 monsters comparable to Universe Enlightened Ancestral Gods, then it was sufficient to make others feel terrified by the sight of them!
No wonder these five Ancestral Roots still haven’t been gathered until now. Merely these 100 plus ancient ancestral god corpses would cause others to not dare trespass into this area at all…. At this moment, Chen Xi became even more cautious. However, he felt bewildered because that strand of a summon in his heart came from the depths of the thick mist.
This meant that this summon wasn’t related to the eighth-grade Ancestral Root before him at all.
On the other hand, if Chen Xi wanted to find out exactly where this summon came from and exactly what was summoning him, then he had to continue forward and ceaselessly traverse deeper into this area!
I’ve already encountered so many ancient ancestral god corpses after arriving here. I truly wonder exactly what sort of dangers exist even deeper into this area. Chen Xi sighed in his heart. He pondered deeply for a long time before he decided in the end that he would try to obtain this fortuitous encounter before him first. If no lethal mishaps occurred, then he would continue forward towards the depths of this place, otherwise, he would immediately turn around and flee.
Compared to figuring out the summon in his heart, his own life was undoubtedly the most important.
After he made a decision, Chen Xi’s figure flashed and silently approached the eighth-grade Ancestral Root. All along the way, he utilized the Daoseal Mark to conceal his aura while his movements were conducted soundlessly as he was deeply afraid of drawing the attention of those ancient corpses.
Needless to say, the Daoseal Mark that came from within the River Diagram fragments was truly formidable to the limit and profound to the limit. It caused Chen Xi to seem immaterial as he moved about, and he actually arrived safely before the eighth-grade Ancestral Root.
The clear and translucent blue divine radiance had transformed into a beam that shot into the sky, and it was dazzling and resplendent. On the other hand, a ball of light that was like a tiny sun seethed at the bottom of the ruins. Its surface was enshrouded with the profound aura of the Grand Dao, and it emanated a surging ancestral aura as if it was alive.
Without any doubt, it was definitely the eighth-grade Ancestral Dao Root!
At this moment, Chen Xi didn’t reveal any excitement or delight, and he became even more cautious instead. He didn’t dare be careless because he noticed to his shock that there were four ancient ancestral god corpses residing at the side of the eighth-grade Ancestral Dao Root!
They stood motionlessly in four corners like statues. Their auras had fused with the Desolate Manku Qi in the surroundings, and if Chen Xi hadn’t witnessed how terrifying they were prior to this moment, he would have almost been deceived by them.
But even then, Chen Xi still frowned without end. The reason was that once he seized that eighth-grade Ancestral Dao Root, it would definitely alarm those four ancient corpses. In this way, even if he possessed the Daoseal Mark to conceal his aura, he would definitely be noticed by them!
If it was merely that, then it would still be simple to deal with. But the crux was that over 100 ancient corpses were lying in ambush within an area of 500km!
This was what Chen Xi felt was most troublesome to deal with.
How truly troublesome. Chen Xi sighed in his heart. It felt like a treasure trove was laid right before his eyes, yet it just happened to be filled with killing intent and caused others to not dare enter it at all.
If I really have no other choice, then I can only give up on obtaining those four seventh-grade Ancestral Dao Roots…. After pondering through it over and over again, Chen Xi helplessly noticed that the only method he could think of was to seize the eighth-grade Ancestral Dao Root before fleeing immediately. Because he might have a chance to escape then, otherwise, he would be bound to be trapped here.
When he thought up to here, a wisp of a resolute expression flashed in his eyes, and he intended to act. However, right at this moment, his Daoseal Mark suddenly captured a wave of voice transmissions.
In next to no time, the content of these voice transmissions entered into his ears.
“Big Brother Shaonong, looks like the information was true, and this is definitely the Godsfall Ruins that was recorded in the ancient books of the Dao Institute!”
“An eighth-grade Ancestral Dao Root! Only the Godsfall Ruins is capable of producing an Ancestral Dao Root of such quality….”
“Everyone be careful. We must not alarm those monsters!”
“Brother Luo, aren’t you being a little too careful. Those monsters aren’t a match for us.”
“Di Jun, only the two of us are able to go against those monsters. Do you think that we’re able to annihilate over 100 ancient ancestral god corpses by ourselves?”
“How would we know the answer without giving it a try?”
“Shut up! Listen to me if you want to obtain that eighth-grade Ancestral Dao Root, otherwise, leave right now!”
“Hmph! Alright! I’ll listen to you. I hope you’ll really be able to pass that eighth-grade Ancestral Dao Root to me in the end. Otherwise, I won’t help you seize that ninth-grade Emperor Rank Ancestral Dao Root!”
The voice transmissions stopped abruptly.
However, Chen Xi had already roughly guessed who they were, and his eyes narrowed slightly while he sighed endlessly with emotion in his heart.
The Godsfall Ruins!
Merely based on this name alone, he knew that Luo Shaonong, Di Jun, and the others had already obtained precise information a long time ago, and they’d come prepared.
This was the difference in their resources. Luo Shaonong and the others came from extremely huge sects and powers that possessed extraordinary resources and reserves. So, the information they obtained naturally far exceeded the information possessed by ordinary cultivators.
For example, Chen Xi had only arrived here by chance. Otherwise, with his identity, he would be utterly unable to find out that the name of this place was the Godsfall Ruins.
However, this was clearly not the time to think about all of this. Because the arrival of Luo Shaonong, Di Jun, and the others had caused Chen Xi to instantly feel a form of pressure.
In other words, the current situation was one where he didn’t just have to fight those ancient ancestral god corpses, he even had to take precautions against Luo Shaonong’s group taking advantage of him while he was in battle with the ancient corpses.
It was even that Chen Xi was sure that Luo Shaonong and the others would definitely act in that way because Zhuanyu Shui’s experience was the best example of this.
What should I do? Chen Xi deduced swiftly. At this moment, he was even able to sense the footsteps of Luo Shaonong, Di Jun, and the others had already started to approach this place.
In other words, the current situation was extremely pressing, and there was no time to be lost!
Suddenly, a wisp of bright light flashed in Chen Xi’s eyes.
In the next moment, he flicked his finger lightly to execute the Vorpal Strike, and he slashed it towards the distance.
Space exploded into pieces as an expanse of space 50km away was slashed into pieces, and it rumbled like a deafening thunderclap.
In an instant, all the ancient ancestral god corpses lying in ambush in the surroundings were alarmed, and they swiftly rose into the sky, causing over 100 pairs of blood red pupils to flick within the dense mist like dazzling lanterns.
The heavens and the earth were instantly filled with a violent, raging, and extremely ghastly pressure.
“They’d noticed us!”
“It’s too late. Looks like we can only fight with our lives on the line.”
“I said it since the beginning that we should have just killed our way over. Why act so cautiously? Now it would seem like it was an unnecessary action.”
At practically the exact same time, a wave of exclaims of shock resounded in the distance. Obviously, it was Luo Shaonong, Di Jun, and the others, and it instantly drew the attention of all those ancient corpses.
In the next moment, wave after wave of sharp cries that sounded like metal rubbing against each other resounded. Those ancient ancestral god corpses seemed like sharks that had smelt blood, and they whistled through the air as they charged towards the same direction with a vast impetus that caused the heavens and the earth to dim down.
“Enjoy.” A wisp of a smile couldn’t help but suffuse the corners of Chen Xi’s mouth when he saw this, and then he shot his gaze towards the eighth-grade Ancestral Dao Root at the side.
